Start off by exploring the ruins of Old Castle Archdale, an impressive fortification built in 1612 when the Archdale family arrived in Ireland from Suffolk, England. The path then leads you along the river before the wide expanse of Lower Lough Erne opens up in front of you. You will then skirt the loughshore through dense woodland with incredible views of White Island and Davy’s Island. You will notice Tom’s Island is not actually an island however, before the lough was lowered many years ago it was cut off from the mainland by a shallow strip of water.
